One Page Script - Doctor Who

Doctor Who – World War Who

The Doctor is up against his most fearsome and powerful enemy yet. He has tried to defeat him once. He lost. Badly. He now stands before this enemy, confident as he reveals his new plan to conquer the Big Bad.

1. The eleventh Doctor (as portrayed by Matt Smith) is standing in a spotlight facing the reader. We can see his full body in the panel, pitch blackness outside of what the spotlight has highlighted. He is alone. Looking up at the reader, the Doctor is addressing his rather large nemesis who we cannot see.

THE DOCTOR

Here’s the thing about time travel.

2. A pair of shoes can now be seen at the edges of the spotlight, situated just behind the Doctor.

Most forget that time isn’t actually linear.

3. The spotlight has moved up to revel who is standing behind the Doctor – they are the last two incarnations of the Doctor (Christopher Eccleston to his right, David Tennant to his left). Both are holding their sonic screwdrivers out, poised and ready to use them. More pairs of feet can be seen again at the edge of this expanded spotlight shining on the Doctors.

THE DOCTOR

So it wasn’t a matter of where I was going to get help last time you kicked my behind.

4. The spotlight has not shed light on the whole panel. The remaining eight previous incarnations of the Doctor are standing behind the three latest incarnations. They are all ready for action. The eleventh Doctor, still at the front of the pack wears a smirk.

THE DOCTOR

It was when I was going.

This piece really relies on you guys knowing that the Doctor ‘regenerates’ when he dies – that is, he gets a new body, new personality but retains all of his memories. As a few of the previous actors have passed on, I thought that a comic was the only place where we would get to see such a gathering of all of the Doctor’s incarnations. Hey, it’s time travel – anything is possible.

@benjum: interesting...

I always thought you couldn't cross the time stream and meet your self, but I guess it would be possible...

I love the idea! :)

The Poet has a point, but I mean there is the last episode of David Tennant's run where he meets the guy who thinks he's the doctor and the Doctor didn't seem to have a problem with it, at the time. Rose also meets herself as a baby, and as long as they didn't touch, nothing happened.

I wish there was more, even though I knows it a one shot, I'd love to see more of this come to life.

Thanks guys.

I agree that The Poet does raise a valid point. However, you will notice that there is nothing but black surrounding the Doctor(s). In my head, this story takes place right at the very end of time, so what does it matter if they all team up?

Appreciate your comments and taking the time out to read my little one pager.
